Riyadh Local Customs: 72 reviews and 62 photos

Until the present time, the Saudi society consists of many TRIBES like Shammar, Anaza, Otayba and Motair just to name a few.

If you belong to a tribe means you're a pure Saudi (by birth and by blood) A non-Tribal are the ones who just migrated from other countries long time ago and settled after Hajj in Mecca and Medina.

It is very common to see someone tribal who cannot marry or deprived the right of marrying a non tribal individual.
